I Will Only Accept Third Party Referrals Only

Posted on

Due to a very high amount of phone calls from individuals, who do not want me to contact their G.P. or named person in charge of their care, I have decided to only take referrals from registered professionals (care/healthcare/educational etc.)

It cannot be stressed enough that I have a duty of care and I must follow rules of the Health, Care and Professions Council. I must be in communication with a named professional, even if it is to simply let them know that you are in therapy. I MUST work in conjunction with other professionals and organisations, for your own safety.

I feel that third party referrals  is the safest option for everyone concerned, including myself.

Thank you for your understanding

Art Therapy Taster Session in August 2018

Posted on

 

I am looking to facilitate an Art Therapy taster session in the second week in August 2018 . It will be in the afternoon. (exact date and venue to be confirmed)

Art therapy groups are a helpful way to explore personal and group themes.

In a supportive, non-judgmental and confidential space, participants can paint and reflect together.

This is an experiential group, so just turn up to give Art Therapy a try.

Materials and media will be provided

This session is totally independent of any other organisation.

It is free to attend. It can give you an idea of how to use Art Therapy in a group setting.

There is no fixed time to arrive or leave the session.  The time limit will be within the three hour slot I will be providing

Please let me know if you do not want photographs to be taken of your creations in the session.

The images will be used for promotional purposes only.

I will offer a photography consent form in print on the day of the session.

Please do not name the front of your work, to preserve confidentiality.

You can take your creations away, or I can safely dispose of it. I will not keep your work after the session has finished.

This an Adult (over 16) Art Therapy session. Please do not bring your children as there is no creche provided. 

 

 


Important. If you wish to come and experience the Art Therapy session, please bear these points in mind.


  • I would like to stress that this taster session or any session after this is NOT a pre-cursor to going onto further education. I will not be answering questions about studying as the internet can be a very good and reliable source of information.
  • You will only be disappointed by my refusal so please don’t ask.
  • I will not provide references to say you have attended the taster session to boost any application for further education.
  • The onus is upon yourself to make the appropriate connection to the registered institutions who offer the Art Therapy course.
  • I do not offer volunteering or employment opportunities.

Taster Session Cancelled until Further Notice

Posted on

It is with regret that the Art Therapy taster session I wish to offer is Cancelled at the Glyndon Community Centre until further notice.

I apologise for any inconvenience caused, this cancellation is beyond my control.

I am looking to set up a taster session elsewhere without going through a third party to host it.

Again I apologise for the inconvenience.

Art Therapy Taster Session Update

Posted on

 

 

Thank you for your patience regarding the taster Art Therapy session I will be offering.

 

The organisers of the health event at the Glyndon Community Centre have scaled down the amount of different services that will be available on the day.

I have been invited to offer my Art therapy taster at another time.

It will now be offered in the school holidays in Easter. (Dates will be available closer to the time)

Again, I would like to thank everyone in the interest in my taster session. I will update you as soon as reasonably possible

I would like to stress that this taster session or any session after this is NOT a pre-cursor to going onto further education. I will not be answering questions about studying as the internet can be a very good and reliable source of information.

You will only be disappointed by my refusal so please don’t ask.

I will not provide references to say you have attended the taster session to boost any application for further education.

The onus is upon yourself to make the appropriate connection to the registered institutions who offer the Art Therapy course.

Hoax Electronic Communication for Art Therapy

Posted on
I have had many phone calls and texts (all fake requests) regarding querying Art Therapy. I would like to point out, I am not wasting my time energy or phone costs in this activity. It is all down to the caller.
 
People are even going as far as asking for requests via our registration body.
I would like to point out that everything we do is DOCUMENTED and LOGGED when it comes to our registration body.
 
Please think twice before wasting YOUR OWN TIME making hoax requests for Art Therapy.
 
I will not hesitate to offer up my phone or computer activity to law enforcement If I feel there is harassment happening if this persists.
 
My best contact is by phone as per usual.
 
THE ONUS IS UPON YOURSELF to be mindful when using electronic communication as it is not always secure. I will not guarantee security over social media or electronic communication in any shape or form.

 

Communication companies most definately keep logs of the use of their service.

“When it comes to love and loss, acceptance is never easy. We can’t make someone see all we have to give, make them love us, or make them change. All we can do is move on and stop wasting time.”
